Linus is a 6 years young pit mix. He is a gentle giant that is looking for a loving forever home. His size may be big...but his heart is bigger!!! He just wants to be close to you and share your life with you. He has lived with children and is very good with them, but would prefer older children that have less energy like him. He has lived with another dog in the past, but now in his life he would prefer ALL of your attention and really doesn't want to share his time that he has with you with another dog. He is looking for a big fenced in yard that he can run and play in. He loves to relax in the grass on a beautiful day. He will play ball with you all day, if you let him. He would also love a nice couch to curl up on with you and a big bed to share with you. Linus is not a barker...he will cry or yawn, but he just doesn't like to bark. Linus, by far is an amazing dog that has so much to offer and is hoping to find his forever home. Currently living in Oak Lawn, IL

Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match.

The adoption counselor can answer your questions when they call after receiving your application. Please remember we are an all volunteer organization.

About Castaway Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Castaway Pet Rescue Inc. is a non-profit, foster-home based pet rescue organization located in Northeast Illinois. We bring homeless dogs into our network of volunteer foster homes (our personal homes) where they receive medical care and are given the chance to acclimate to life outside a shelter. Our foster homes aid in evaluating the personality and temperament of the dog to assist in providing the best adoptive home situation possible.

Dogs are generally taken from animal control shelters in our local communities, where they were going to be euthanized due to a lack of space. We look for dogs that will make good companions for their future families and deserve a second chance or, in some cases, a third chance before it is too late.

Our Adoption Process...

To initiate the adoption process, please complete the following steps:

1. Please fill out the form on our website to submit your adoption application. When you press SEND, the form will be automatically emailed to Castaway Pet Rescue, Inc.

2. One of our adoption counselors will review the application, check your vet reference, and reply back to you. We may have additional questions or require a home visit.

3. Once your application is approved, we will contact you to schedule a visit with the dog you are interested in. Please select a time when the entire family including current dogs can visit.

4. If the dog still has outstanding medical procedures to be performed, we will inform you at the time we schedule the visit with the dog. All dogs must be spayed or nuetered.

5. We prefer the adoption be completed at the time of the visit if you and the dog agree that we have a match. Please come prepared to take your new family member home with you.
